Teammates have a laugh at Josh Thomson’s expense

Strikeforce lightweight Josh Thomson has plenty on his mind already considering his match-up this weekend against divisional champion Gilbert Melendez. However, he recently had to focus his attention on a different challenge after an entirely new set of issues came up thanks to a group of his teammates at American Kickboxing Academy (including Daniel Cormier) who decided to pull a prank by moving his car, then tricking him into believing he’d parked it illegally.

“My car’s totally covered,” says a semi-relieved Thomson while on the phone with presumably his insurance company after thinking his truck had been stolen.

After the group of troublemakers finally lets him in on the joke a laughing Thomson added, “They tried to punk ‘The Punk’. Evil…evil…”
